No May Mews-ings

New books, originally uploaded by littlemiao.

Not a single post for May! I've only finished two books - two short murder mysteries. I'm working on a third (not a murder mystery and not quite as short), The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne, but I have only just emerged from the "Custom House" to the narrative proper.

I didn't mean to abandon the Book Mews for nearly a month. I have such a backlog of books to reflect on, and a sprinkling of little thoughts that I'd like to jot down as I'm reading. In the future, I will have to compel myself to write a "mewsing" on each book within two days after completing it.

In the photo are the books I ordered in May - four Shakespeare plays and Orwell's 1984.
